[movies]JoAnne Northrup: Tracing Modernism from Bauhaus to Beehive - Berkeley Center for New Media
Within the contemporary art world a group of artists--including Erwin Redl, Leo Villareal, and Jennifer Steinkamp, among others--explore light, color, abstraction, and movement within a technological foundation. These artists might be regarded as the "black swans" of new media art (Richard Rinehart, 2012) since their work foregrounds the aesthetic, situating their work outside the dominant dialogue surrounding Post-Internet art...

[movies]ATC - Kaja Silverman: The Twilight of Posterity - Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium
In the summer of 2003, the Louvre mounted a large exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci’s paintings, drawings and manuscripts. Within this exhibition there were several curious objects: four pairs of video editing monitors and a large-screen projection of digital images of The Last Supper. These objects constituted an "intervention" by Irish artist James Coleman. The video monitors displayed drawings from Leonardo’s notebooks, which return us to a moment prior to the division of art from science, ...
